Certified Veterinary Technicians

NOW HIRING Certified Veterinary Technician(s)!

Welcome to our career page! To be considered for employment as a CVT, you must be a Certified Veterinary Technician or eligible to take the exam within the next 6 months. Our current team is highly skilled and knowledgeable, so all experience and skill levels will be considered as long as you are teachable, hardworking, and learn quickly; new graduates are welcome to apply. 
This position could be full-time or part-time, we’re looking for the best “fit” for our clinic and team and depends on what opening(s) we may have available.

Are you in school to be a CVT? We’re always open to hiring interns and/or Veterinary Assistants to assist or technical staff and give you on-the-job training and work experience while you finish school!

Our team has a common goal to provide the best patient care and quality veterinary medicine. We have an amazing team and we’re looking to find someone that will add positively to our current dynamic. What does this mean you ask? Let me explain:

  • Must be able to participate in friendly conversations and laugh often. Sense of humor strongly desired (i.e. professional but not too serious).
  • Do you like social media? Great! We want you to add to ours.
  • Do you enjoy games like Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity? We have Vets Against Insanity and enjoy playing it from time to time.
  • Up for some friendly competition? Last summer we played yard games to win a robot vacuum and other fun stuff.
  • Are you helpful? Do you like to go out of your way to do something extra for someone else (coworker, client, patient, etc.)? We have a Wall of Good Deeds we’d like to put you on – no good deed goes unnoticed and every good deed gets you into a drawing to win a prize at staff meetings.
  • Must be willing/interested in team activities such as: fancy dinners at delicious local-ish restaurants, Easter egg hunt, Secret Santa, parking lot BBQ, etc.
  • You must be comfortable with gross, dirty, and smelly and be willing to clean anything without hesitation.
  • Do you like copious amounts of coffee and pizza? You’ll fit in great. Qdoba is also a popular choice among staff. [Always with alternative options for anyone who has restrictions/preferences of course!]
  • Accepting of change and be willing to learn with an open mind and optimistic attitude. We try to be a progressive clinic and keep up with the latest technologies, trends, and always practice the best medicine with strong emphasis on our patient’s behavior (fear, anxiety, & stress).
  • Lastly, and most importantly: you must be able to communicate effectively. Our ideal CVT will be able to ask questions, give feedback, make suggestions, accept constructive criticism, and speak up when something may not be going well or as effectively as it could be. Be able to ask for what you need, help from others, and utilize Assistants appropriately.

Here’s a bit about us: We’re a 2.5 doctor small animal practice. We’re located just West of the Twin Cities metro in a really cute small-town community with the “big city” stuff just a short drive away. Ultimately we’re hoping to ADD another DVM and 1-2 more CVTs to our thriving and growing clinic.

We genuinely believe that that our patient’s mental health is just as important as their physical health so we will pay to have you become certified in Low Stress Handling and Fear Free.

Technician duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Client communication and education
  • Patient assessment and triage
  • Animal handling and restraint
  • Surgical assisting, anesthesia administration and monitoring
  • Dentistry
  • Radiology
  • Laboratory sample collection and processing
  • General record keeping and reception

Do you need benefits? We have all the things, and we think we are quite generous, too. Some benefits we offer our staff include: paid time off, health/dental insurance, retirement + matching, allowances for uniforms, pet care and education, bonus opportunities, and more! Benefits will vary depending on part-time or full-time status.

*We are offering relocation assistance / sign-on bonus options*

Lastly, some additional qualifications we are looking for:

  • Reliable attendance
  • Ability to learn and follow low-stress handling techniques
  • Outstanding communication and teamwork skills
  • Attention to detail
  • Ability to stand for long periods of time and lift up to 40# independently
  • Able to work in a fast-paced environment and multi-task
